Filling the Holes: How Homeopathy Deserves a Place in Cancer Treatment by Guest blogger Allison Brooks


Homeopathy is being in practiced for more then 200 years  .  Before there were “white-coat doctors” and hospitals, there was nature. Nature provided and still provides everything needed to sustain life. Nature gives life, food, water, and health. But as time goes on, humans separate themselves with nature more and more, and the trust in using natural remedies is nonexistent. But, if people looked at the facts, their trust in conventional therapies and medications would diminish.

This is where the example of “filling the holes” comes in; what better way to explain a medical therapy from nature, than with an analogy from nature. Holes do not form themselves; either someone must dig a hole, or the soil composition is weak and then slumps to form a hole. If a conventional cancer therapy were to see this problem, it would simply fill the hole, only to see it re-appear in the future. But if a homeopathic consultant saw the hole, he/she would consider how the hole formed and then fix that problem or soil-imbalance to prevent the hole from recurring. 

Since conventional therapies focus only on the treatment of symptoms, like a tumor or growth, the underlying bodily imbalances go un-noticed. If the imbalance or root of the problem is not treated, then the problem will continue to arise. This is where homeopathy steps in. Using what is Nature supplies and following the law of similars, homeopathy has proven to be a vital force in the fight against cancer.

There is much proof that using homeopathy with cancer treatments actually improves recovery time and reduces the chance of recurrence. Many doctors have recognized that fighting cancer with a multiple-layered approach tends to work the best. Nurturing the body, while using conventional therapies, promotes strength, stamina, and the well-being to combat the cancer with full-force. Doctors that are devoted to treating aggressive cancer or ones with a low-survivability rate, like non-hodgkin’s lyphoma or pericardial mesothelioma, encouraged the use of homeopathy, or another alternative therapy, with cancer treatment. 

Many hospitals even offer the use of in-house homeopathic consultants or alternative therapy practitioners.
